Most socks are knitted in the round, with double-pointed needles. . . but what about those don't want to knit in the round? After trying many flat-knitted sock projects (that turned out with lumps and seams) the author went home and came up alternative patterns for knitting socks on straight needles. Easy to knit, comfortable to wear, and actually attractive (with the seam integrated into the design), these patterns are perfect for those crafters who prefer straight needles. Twenty unique patterns included. 144 pages, hidden comb-binding to lay flat. Hardcover.
